I remember there is a hot key that can open a window which contains the information just the same as if I middle mouse a op tile. What's the hot key?

not sure if there is a hotkey by default, but you can get the window through Right Click/Extended Infirmation…

if you want the hotkey, assign it in Hotkey Manager to /Houdini/Panes/Network Editor/Node Menu/Extended Information

Thanks for the respond. Extended information is not what I am looking for. I am looking for a small window contains the texts that is same as I middle mouse on a node.

Are you thinking of the blue info (I) button that's on the Parameter pane?

It doesn't look like it's possible to do this. Ctrl + Shift + Alt + LMB on an interface item will bring up the hotkey manager if the widget is keyable. In this case it would appear it isn't.

You could also fetch that information using a hotkey-bound script. The results could be sent to the status bar, shell window, or dialog box.



Hscript provides an all-in-one summary via opinfo, but there's probably a simpler Python equivalent.



Results could be presented in various ways:

A pinnable window, that follows node selection and present the MMB information would be a nice workflow enhancer (fewer clicks).

I think there is a bunch of RFEs for this, submitted one by myself.
